A New Use for Floss

Today I took all four kids to the dentist. I've found it works best for all of us if they go at the same time. If not, then I have appointments scattered everywhere! 

I decided to switch dentists a few weeks ago. I had never really been happy with the dentist they had been going to. But I kept making appointments for seven years! So, this time I made the switch. The kids were apprehensive, the other one was really the only dentist they ever remembered going to.  But it helped a little that they knew the new dentist from church.

After filling out paperwork for all four children, which made me want to rethink having four, I noticed there was a big aquarium. David had always wanted to go to a dentist with an aquarium, so I was feeling pretty good about my decision! And as I should have. They loved it! There were tv's, and it was open so they could see other people. The other office was just a series of small rooms, so this was a huge improvement!

I met with the dentist, which is something the other one never did. (I never knew what had happened.) And she said there were no cavities! Yay! That's a lot of clean, brushed, and cared for teeth right there. When we were leaving Daniel handed me his bag with his new toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss in it and said, "floss! I use that stuff for rope." 

Oh my children!
